    Comments about Essie Protein Base Coat:

    My nails are dehydrated by some medications, thus causing some aggravation. This Essie product has proven to rehydrate my most problem nail quickly. I use it as a base coat, and am quite pleased.

          Comments about Essie Protein Base Coat:

          I can't say there has been an improvement in the condition of my nails. It's only been 3 weeks and 4 manicures so perhaps more use? I will say as a base coat the product is a real let down for me. I use Essie polish and thought this would be a good combo. It just doesn't keep the polish and there's too much chipping and wear.

            My nails were peeling and splitting terribly. I kept them cut short with polish but the nails still split. I have been using the Essie protein base coat for 2 weeks now and have no more splitting or peeling. This product is the answer to a prayer.

                I started using this product at the nail spa to help grow my nails, a year now and my nails are fully grown and strong. I recommend this product for anyone who's trying to grow their nails.

                      I generally have dry nails but this product keeps them hydrated and healthy. I use it as a base coat, but am addicted to red nail polish which tends to stain nails even if a base coat is applied but this one protects them from the harsh effects of wearing color on top.
